I was driving through central Illinois today on my way back home and took a different route.  I didn't realize I would be driving through the Twin Groves Wind Farm [1] which when it was completed is the largest wind farm east of the Mississippi River.  There are 240 turbines covering 22,000 acres.  Pretty insane but it looks so beautiful seeing them running generating clean energy.  I hope to see more of these wind farms developed across the country, and I may try to head back to Twin Groves to capture some much better photos.
